Notes & Reviews:

This wonderful release features Schubert's String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, D. 810 and Grieg's String Quartet in G Minor, Op. 27. By placing side by side two works that at first sight seem fairly different, this recording aims to bring into the open, for the first time, the fascinating details that link them.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The release has the title The Schubert Connection, by which is meant the players see or feel a connection between the Grieg G-minor Quartet and Death and the Maiden. I played both on my Blu-ray player, but listened on headphones without any surround sound; the SACD sounded very good. I want this piece to show more sensitivity. Viennese players and people schooled in that aesthetic seem to understand this better. As for the Grieg, the Oslo musicians match the fieriness of the piece very well, and this was the more interesting performance.
